Best Pubs in Surry Hills
If there’s any suburb in Sydney blurring the lines of what a pub can be, it’s Surry Hills. How many of the city's boozers stock Japanese beers, serve woodfired Roman-style pizza (as opposed to the barbecue-sauce-on-crusty focaccia kind), pour a national curation of craft beer from 30 rotating taps, or host live DJs with a side of hard-hitting Southern American food?
Reading that, you might think they’ve blurred the lines so much they’re more akin to bars or restaurants. But what makes these spots greats is that they do something exceptional, or something different – but they still feel like a pub. Some are (almost) a peanut’s throw away from another. None are horrific, some are solid and some groundbreaking. This is a guide to help you choose your favourite.
